In 2000, I formed 1v1 Soccer with the objective to provide young Canadian players with training experiences comparable to leading soccer nations.
Seventeen years later and we currently have 5 players training in Europe!
Matthew Roberts is at the Swansea City Academy, Luke McConnell is playing at a semi-professional level in Portugal, Drazan Rakovac and Noah Pacheco are attending the international academy program at Chievo Verona in Italy and Luca Jankovic is at the Hercules Soccer Academy in Spain.
We are currently training over 70+ players and are looking to train and place several players in academy programs in Europe in 2018.
We will also be offering formal trial opportunities in Germany, Portugal, UK and Spain.
Train with 1v1 Soccer FC and take your next step towards professional playing opportunities in Europe. Semi-professional players can earn 800-1,000 euros/month, receive free room and board and play in front of 8,000 fans each week.
Longer stays and more frequent trips will allow the North America player to better understand the performance standards in Europe and improve their performance levels in all four areas – technically, tactically, physically and mentally!
